Neogiant project

NeoGiANT is an innovative action coordinated by the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). NeoGiANT aims at developing a new set of products (animal feed, treatment products, sperm extenders) able to decrease the use of antibiotics on farmed animals and substitute synthetic preservatives. These new products, based on natural extracts, using an advanced isolation technique, will not only avoid the growth of microorganisms but also improve the health and welfare of the animals increasing profitability.

The proposal is based on the use of biomass sources that can provide cost-effective, efficient and green solutions to obtain functional ingredients in sustainable circular economy production systems. The new products developed will be based on one extract of natural origin called e-Vitis (obtained from Vitis vinifera). -Vitis is isolated using as raw material grape marc from the production of high-quality white wines, that preserves, after the winemaking process, a significant load of bioactive compounds originally present in the grape.

NeoGiANT started on October 1st, 2021 and will last until September 30th, 2025.

NeoGiANT’s consortium is formed by 20 members from different institutions and private companies from 8 EU countries and 1 non-EU country: Argentina.

The partners are: University of Santiago de Compostela (coordinator) (Spain), Moredun research Institute (United Kingdom), Prof. Waclaw Dabrowski Institute of Agriculture and Food Biotechnology Veterinary Research Institute (Poland), Veterinary Research Institute (Czech Republic), Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences (Hungary), Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), University of Porto – Science Faculty (Portugal), University of La Laguna (Spain), Asociación Española de Normalización (Spain), University of South Bohemia (Czech Republic), National Scientific and Technical Research Council (Argentina), Asociación Agraria de Jóvenes Agricultores (Spain), Anitom S.L (Belgium), i-Grape Laboratory S.L.
